P R E F A C E. 



Since the publication of the Krst two Volumes of the 'Catalogue 
of Moths,' Vol. I. in 1898 and Vol. II. in 1900, a very large 
number of species in the families of which they treat have been 
described, and it became necessary to prepare a Supplement in 
order to bring the subject matter of those volumes up to date. 
That Supplement is to be found in the present Volume. 

The name Amatidce is substituted for Syntomidce. as the 
generic name Amata, Fabr., lias been proved to have priority 
over Syntomis, Oehs. 

The Amatidce in Vol. I. contained 1G9 genera and 1184 species, 
to which are now added 16 genera and 915 species. 

The NoI'uks in Vol. II. had 13 genera and 102 species, to which 
are added 1 genus and 116 species. 

The Lithosiauce. also in Vol. II., had 211 genera and 1035 
species, to which are added 73 genera and 880 species. 

It is proposed to publish next a Supplementary Volume to 
Vol. III., containing the additions to the Arctianee and Aga- 
ristidce ; then to continue the Noctuida, in which the preparation 

nt' the classification of the very large subfamily NoctuilUB is 
making steady progress. 



VI PKEFACE. 

Sir George Hainpson has to acknowledge the assistance which he 
has received, mostly from those whose help has heen referred to 
in earlier volumes of the Catalogue, by the loan of types and 
specimens, and in other ways. 

The coloured drawings which have been made for him from 
types of species which are not in the Collection of the British 
Museum, and of which he has been unable to examine specimens, 
have been reproduced, and are severally acknowledged in the text. 

The Plates in connection with this volume, which will be 
ready for publication about March 1915, are numbers I.-XLI. 
of the Supplement; No. XLIL will appear in Vol. II. of the 
Supplement.
